Download e-book for iPad: Alfred of Wessex by

“Here is one put aside for greatness!” With those prophetic phrases did Pope Leo IV anoint the four-year-old Prince Alfred, youngest son of Ethelwulf, King of Wessex in England. Deeply prompted from youth via his brother Ethelred and their clever teach Bishop Swithin, Alfred turned either a pupil and visionary, with the convinced center and talent of a warrior. First as prince, later as king, his lifestyles was once devoted to the security of Wessex—its humans and its Christian faith—from the ravaging onslaughts of the heathen Danes. His dependence on Christ, his love for the
Church and its humans, coupled together with his humor, and the humility he realized via his blunders marked Alfred’s lifestyles.
As the final Christian nation status opposed to the Danes, Wessex and its King confronted many defeats and discouragements. however, Alfred—one who “set men’s hearts afire”—eventually united the entire kingdoms of 9th century England,
defeating the Danes in conflict, but in addition, after all, welcoming them to the Christian faith.
